locked Re: Updated Firefox to version 89, can no longer use w/NVDA
Set the browser to notify you when updates are available but not to automatically update. Perhaps updates aren’t sent to all users simultaneously but since you may be updated at any time, you may want to disconnect from the Internet before you run Firefox and make this change. Also, as I’ve said, to keep safe with current security updates, you can use the ESR version.
So, how long before we all get v.89 unless we take steps not to update. Don't want to be caught unawares before this happens.

I've tried both w/the NVDA beta as well as the stable version, folks.
It's broken on my system, & that includes w/Narrator & Jaws also.
